for your amusement...

The big thing in the etsy community, it seems, is using your blog to promote other etsy sellers. I've decided to jump on the bandwagon, but instead of just choosing a seller to "feature," I'm going to highlight a few items from treasuries I've curated, starting with this amusement park-themed one that just expired:

I'm in love with this photograph, "When We Are Old," by one of the most popular photographers on etsy, AliciaBock. I love it when I see older couples who are obviously still in love--so sweet. And I adore the old-fashioned quality of Alicia's photos. Check out her shop for more stunning photography.

I'm also a huge fan of this photo by brand-new etsy seller alternative2love. A dynamic combination: bright colors, Paris, and my personal favorite amusement park ride, the swings! This talented artist hasn't sold anything yet, so head on over to her shop to browse her artwork and vintage clothes, and maybe you'll be the first! (Unless I decide to beat you to it. :))

Finally, here's another tribute to the swings, miltongravy's painting, "The Yoyo." One of the few-and-far-between men of etsy, he fancies himself a "gourmet pigment chef." The soothing color scheme here is delicious indeed. And there's plenty more feasting for the eyes to be done in his beautiful shop!

Other sellers included in the treasury were jennsphotography, prettyvicious, photogypsy320, lbjphotography, gallogirlphotos, ellemoss, stoopidgerl, strangefascination, and galeriedeilluminata. Check them out. I promise you'll be amused, at the very least. :)
